ACLU supports network neutrality proposals

The ACLU sent a posting this evening, giving a lot of detailed arguments in favor of network neutrality legislation.

The ACLU maintains that large search engines already pay large sums for bandwidth and that there is nothing wrong with block purchases of bandwidth.

The form to contact legislators is here.

It also maintains that provisions of network neutrality for SBC/AT&T and Verizon/MCI expire in 2007. The FCC in 2006 declined to regulate Time Warner's and Comcast's acquisition of Adelphia.
